Metallic Water Marble


If you follow me on Twitter, (@manicuredmonkey), you  have seen a preview of this mani. I was far over due for a water marble so I picked up OPI Brisbane Bronze, China Glaze Silver Platinum and Sally Hansen Black Out.
I really love the way this mani turned out! I received compliments on it when I went grocery shopping (and that was from an older gentleman!).

My other hand turned out OK but not as clean as my left.  One thing you really have to do is change your water between marbling sessions.  For example, I water marbled my friends nails (her post is coming up, it turned out so cute!!), and I should have changed the water before I started mine, but I didn't.  By the time I got to my second hand, there was alot of drag in the water (when the lines don't come out clean and crisp). It still looked great, but for someone who water marbles, I notice it more.

Anyways, I was really happy with this mani... Brisbane Bronze is such a great color!
